I’ll have two books debuting at TCAF this May, and here’s a first look at the covers.
First, Destination X from Nobrow Press, a nice little 52-page hardcover pulp sci-fi comic book that I’m pretty excited about.
Secondly, an 80-page Machine Gum collection from my friends at La Pastéque. Technically it’s a French edition, but of course the comics are wordless.
I’ll post more about each book as TCAF draws near. I’ll have two books debuting at TCAF this May, and here’s a first look at the covers.
